Viking Knits design Trud and a Viking Age artifact The Viking Knits Project
A technical innovation in knitting made it possible for Elsebeth Lavold to use the beautiful interlace patterns of the Scandinavian Vikings in her knitwear design.
   The origin of The Viking Knits Project dates back to 1992. Today, the project consists of a touring exhibition,
Knitting Along the Viking Trail, a 128 page book, Viking Patterns for Knitting, three 64 page design collections, The Viking Knits Collection, The Second Viking Knits Collection, and The Third Viking Knits Collection, and well over a hundred designs, available in the books or (in Sweden) as knit kits.
   Discover more at the Viking Knits Project page.


Workshops & Lectures
Elsebeth Lavold doesn't mind sharing her design and knitting skills, as an instructor or lecturer, in English, Swedish or Danish.
   Find out more at the Workshop page.
